According to a study by Inc. Magazine, finding a new job is one of the top 10 most popular New Year’s resolutions. For jobseekers, updating their resumes and reaching out to contacts in their networks are the first steps. But thinking about factors beyond desired salary and job title are just as important; company mission and office culture should also be considered.
